|Birth: ||Aug., 1825|
Eli Cooper was a son of Peter Cooper and Barbara/Clara Ridenour.
Eli married Mary Polly Gross on 12 July 1846 in Campbell County, Tennessee.
They had: Issac Cooper in June of 1847 and Peter Cooper (names after his grandfather) in 1850.
Mary Polly was born abt. 1831 and died abt. 1853.
Eli next married Elizabeth Shepard (a widow) on 1 Oct. 1867 in Campbell Co., TN. Elizabeth was born about 1834 in Tennessee and died before 1900. Elizabeth's maiden name is unknown at this time.
Eli and Elizabeth had James b. 1854, Andrew b. abt 1856, Amon, b. 4 July 1858, Wennefie "Winnie", b. Dec 1859, Thomas, b. abt 1861, Henry b. May 1862 or 3, and Jane b. Sept 1866.
********Eli Cooper's family is somewhat confusing. His father, Peter, was married several times. Peter's wife is listed in some places as Barbara Ridenour, and in other places as Clara Ridenour. I've been told by some family researchers that Barbara / Clara are the same person. Others think that Eli was married to two sisters at different times.
I am still researching this family because Amon Cooper (son of Eli) is my paternal great grandfather. If you have any information about this family, I would love to hear from you. Please either leave a message or send an email to me. *************
